Mankato Out Of Library System 12 Jun 12

The Mankato City Council on Monday approved a resolution that ends the city’s tax levy for funding the Blue Earth County library system. Mankato and Blue Earth County have been unable to reach a joint powers agreement, so the county will now be forced to confront the issue of how to pay for the $516,000 annual library budget. The Blue Earth County Board will be discussing the issue today (TUE).
